    What time do the buses start on a Sunday in December for DIsney Springs? We have Breakfast with Santa at Maria & Enzo's and not sure about transportation.

    Hi Kelly,  

    Thanks for asking about transportation to Disney Springs for your upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth during the Most Magical Time of the Year! I love that you’re planning ahead and thinking through these logistics – it sounds like we’d be fast friends. I’m happy to help you think through this special morning.

    Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante is offering a special event, Breakfast with Santa, on select dates in November and December 2023. This looks like a wonderful morning with a delicious menu and a memorable festive experience for your family! This event also includes additional activities for children, take home holiday goodies, photos with Santa Claus, and one complimentary mimosa for each adult. While Disney Springs opens at 10:00 A.M. daily, this event has a few seating times that begin before then.

    I confirmed with a helpful Cast Member that the bus schedule has not yet been released for December, but that they typically run in time to bring Guests to Disney Springs by 10:00 A.M. which may not work for your seating time. Your Disney Resorts Collection hotel will have a printed Times Guide available at the front desk and in your resort room with the exact transportation times listed for the week you are there. You may also ask the team at the front desk or Bell Services for support in getting a taxi, Minnie Van Service, or use a rideshare app to have a personalized ride at the exact time you desire. The Disney Springs parking garages and Guest drop-off areas open closer to 9:00 A.M. even if the individual businesses do not open until 10:00 A.M. Please be assured that you can be dropped off or use your own vehicle to arrive at the right time for your special meal.

    Feel free to ask us this question again closer to your trip, perhaps around Thanksgiving week, when we may have access to more details on the transportation schedule for December. You don’t have to use Santa’s sleigh to get to this meal on time, but I’m hopeful that some other magical routes will become available closer to your travel dates.

    I adore Disney Springs, and this sounds like a perfect way to celebrate this special holiday tradition of a visit with Santa while enjoying a delicious and fun meal in a great setting. The shops will be open after your event so I hope you can take time to browse, hit some favorite boutiques, and take in the fun atmosphere. Keep an eye out for more details on the traditional Christmas Tree Trail that is available throughout Disney Springs as the season approaches.  

    Wishing you a magical holiday season,
